These two books are part of an on going series that features siblings Peter and Mary and their adventures in Biblical history. Read on for information on how you can win copies of this series!
These books are great for morning reading and easy to read. The story keeps them involved and the easy flow of words help them to be able to read it themselves. My seven year old was able to read most of it on her own with a little help. I like the Biblical messages as well as the history involved. The stories do take a few liberties to increase the adventure aspect but overall are quite entertaining. I like the fact that both these books were about two of our favorite Bible men Daniel and David. Adding the children to the story helps make them more relate-able and reinforce the lessons each book is trying to teach. Both books have amazing messages to teach.
We made it through both books in the same week because they just wanted to keep reading. Can’t wait for the next one!
In Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: The Shepherd’s Stone (Book 5) Peter and Mary go on a journey in time and meet one of my children’s favorite people from the Bible, David. The book begins back in Great Uncle Solomon’s house as Peter utters a phrase that is all too relateable to children now, “This is boring.” He is bored of waiting and becoming impatient and decides to explore the woods while he waits for something to happen. He ends up becoming too scared to enter and turns back to Mary to wait there. They don’t have to wait long till their next clue is given and they are whisked away into a world of adventure and back in time.
There they meet David, a Shepard boy watching his flock. Peter watches as Hank, Mary, and David both show bravery in the face of some kind of danger. He also watches as David uses his sling to protect them in different ways and teaches Peter how to use it as well. The children work to solve the secret of the scroll by figuring out a puzzle. The story gives them opportunists to learn lessons and then are given words to help solve their problem.
The book follows David up to his encounter with Goliath. There the puzzle is solved and Peter learns what it is to be brave. The lesson they learn is, “Fear Not. GOD is bigger than any problem!”
Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: The Lion’s Roar is all about another of our favorite Biblical men, Daniel. Daniel and the lion’s den is by far our most requested Bible story in this house so I know the kids were just as excited as Peter and Mary to go on this adventure. This time they have a puzzle to solve. They will learn that GOD is in control.
The book begins with a game of hide and seek which leads the children to their first clue in their next adventure. This time they go back to Babylon where they are introduced to a high priest who tries to force them to bow to an idol. They refuse because they only worship the one true living GOD and have to run for their lives. They then meet Shadrach and are told the story about Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Then the children meet Daniel who becomes instrumental in helping them solve their problem. In the dark of the lion’s den along with Daniel, the children learn GOD is in control. They are protected from the lions and return safely home.
